Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu With the release of Ubuntu 8.10 only a few days away, Phoronix decided to take a look at the performance figures over the past releases - from Ubuntu 7.04 to Ubuntu 8.10. Phoronix used its own extensive test suite on fresh installations, with the same parameters, on the identical hardware. The results are rather surprising. Update: I've added some more information about this, gathered from the Ubuntu mailing list. You can find it in the 'read more'.

RE: features since ubuntu7.04

Everyone knows there are new features. The point is still that Ubuntu is still slower.

People are tying their best to figure out ways around the fact that new versions of Ubuntu are slower just like new Windows versions. Vista gets burnt at the stake and Ubuntu gets unlimited excuses. Biased people!
